This week we were invited by Olympus to come over to Hamburg, Germany, where Olympus held a big press conference. During the meeting Olympus unveiled their new series of digital compact cameras just ahead of Photokina 2006. Though the weather conditions in Hamburg were pretty bad, a lot or rain, we managed to get our hands on some of the compact Mju models and, how convenient, some waterproof housings. The whole Mju-series have been upgraded and are now offering more features and higher ranked specifications like wide-angle zoom and 10 Megapixel resolution. The compact digital cameras like the Olympus Mju 740 or Mju 750 are stylish designed and easy to handle. You will find additional product information at the special Photokina 2006 report.
Olympus showed various solutions for making images under and around the water. When the action moves from the beach to the water, your Olympus digital camera needn't be left behind. The PT-023 underwater case has been specially customised for the C-8080WZ and is waterproof up to a water pressure equivalent to a depth of 40 metres.
